Give Peace a Chance

Peace ravaged by time so brief
What failing have we to decide
War dawns night or day like a thief
To bleed our national pride

Peace has melted like stale ice
Arming our enemies with precision
The wars go on with a hefty price
Strung up by ample politicians 

Peace be bound by never knowing
Magic tricks recover the facts
We decide with taxes flowing
If we'll ever have our children back

Peace be with you in tomorrow's light
Hope to burn war's savage nights
